COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Characteristics
- Unparelled richness
- Inimitable complexity... made from a blend of many apple varieties, including rare heritage apples
- Warm caramel and baked apple flavour
- Made in limited quantities... each bottle is uniquely numbered and hand-signed
- A naturally made ice cider... without added sugar or alcohol

Serving Suggestions
Due to its richness and concentration of flavours, we recommend serving Signature on its own, as a digestif. It also pairs exceptionally well with blue-veined or aged cheese and orchard fruit or nut-based desserts.

mcberko (12457) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
2011 vintage. 200mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a few bubbles of head. Aroma brings out baked apples, caramel, and butterscotch. Flavour is complex as hell, with notes of vanilla, butterscotch, baked apples, and caramel. Amazing depth, with loads of butterscotch and baked apples on the finish. Phenomenal.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 Bottle No. 2872 - 2006 vintage.... This cider rocks!... Pours clear and deeply golden. Thick, creamy legwork reminiscent of a gallon of paint that has been splashed against a wall and begins to cascade its way toward the floor in a dense sheet. Nice apple, brown sugar and cinnamon nose – sweet and fruity with a suggestion of acidity and spice. Full-bodied with a mildly syrupy mouthfeel. Huge, sweet apple flavor up front that envelopes my palate, then slowly makes the transition toward gentle acidity on the sides of my tongue and back of my throat. Sweet and warming in the end. Thanks go out to TheCheeseMan for saving the last of the bottle for me and giving me the empty!

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
2008-06-01. Third day at Mondial and going strong... well, going anyways! Starting off with a cider seemed like a good way to kick start the senses. Dark golden yellow body (3+). Surprisingly mild aroma, light musty over-ripe apples, sweet. (7+) Sweet apples up front in the flavour, light sugar, quick tart apples in the finish have occasional touches of musty skins, lingering tart apples in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth, medium bodied palate has a nice weight to it without being too heavy. Pretty nice. 2006 Vintage Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, 6T

Bottle 1425/5000 shared by puzzl. Mmm, mmm, I loves me some ice cider. Deep golden colour. Aroma is just loaded with concentrated, honey-laden apple and a soft sweet cinnamony spiciness. Really intensely fruity with lots of apple, a touch of tartness and even a bit of maple and brown sugar along the back. Sweet/tart, fruity and complex... awesome stuff.
